On behalf of the International Women’s Academy (IWA) Phuket, we would like to say thank you to everyone who took part in both constructing our quilt and contributing to the fundraiser we launched this year. We raised a total of 46,237 THB (equivalent to £1,100) which is an amazing success. Special thanks goes to BISP Parent Jane Varley for putting in so many hours to help the BISP IB CAS students after school and assembling the final product using her exceptional quilting skills. We also recognise the contribution of Mr. Phillips (Teacher at BISP) for his help in making the fundraiser successful. None of this would have been possible without either of them.

We are proud to announce the winner of the Quilt campaign draw; The Nimble Thimbles, a group of sewing ladies in Aberdeen, Scotland. They have decided to donate the quilt to a BISP Scholarship student supported by IWA Phuket, as a memento of her time here at BISP.
